I just wanted to say how amazing it is to see how many beautiful people actually care about protecting children and how thankful I am for so much support. I felt so alone for so long- it is a wonderful feeling to know otherwise! 🙏🦋❤️

I grew up as a passive speaker, live in Taiwan and spent 4 years at a job where I conducted almost all interviews in Mandarin. I still will not do public speaking in Mandarin bc I would just vomit. So hats off to anyone who has the courage to speak publicly in a second language.
💯 And his English is way better than the Chinese of most people covering Huawei (and other Chinese tech companies) for English-language media outlets.
Plus, this is HUAWEI. There’s plenty of material there without resorting to mocking someone’s pronunciation. https://twitter.com/thisboyuan/status/1175432382528151552
My man hasn’t faced enough consequences yet, apparently. https://twitter.com/bimadew/status/1175019540914331649
Never let anyone tell you that what you learn about being a person of color in America through lived experience has no bearing on your journalism. Your story helps you tell stories no one else can or will. https://twitter.com/courtneyr/status/1174523189537296385

“I don’t want you playing with something that has such bizarre hair. Awful, awful hair.”
I hate job hunting, can someone please just GIVE me a job? I’m organized, details-oriented, persistent, can simultaneously interpret Mandarin to English and English to Mandarin, and am very discreet. I can and will keep secrets.

Last night i held someone for five minutes because i thought he was crying. He thought i was crying. No one was crying.
(Also, please don’t waste my time, or that of my colleagues. There is no “TechCrunch Asia.” None. It simply does not exist. 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️)
There is NO “TechCrunch Asia.” There are Japanese and Chinese-language versions, but if you are thinking of the English-language site, there is only one, which is the one I write for. Please don’t waste your time by double-pitching reporters based on this assumption.

(Side note: I was an extremely sheltered kid, and my hospitalizations were the first time I realized how much structural inequalities can affect outcomes for people. I moved on not necessarily because I’m stronger than other people, but b/c the system was weighted in my favor).
That privilege also means I can be open about my hospitalizations, because I am more sheltered from the repercussions than many others. So I can say things like: if you’ve been hospitalized for mental health issues, you are NOT alone.
By privileged, I meant I had things-a support system, the financial means, access to good insurance and a host of other unearned advantages-that meant I was able to move on from those experiences, at least on the outside.
This really hits me. I was hospitalized for depression in my teens and in college. I still think about the other patients often. For years the stigma and shame made me wary of getting close to people, but I’m open about it now because I realize how privileged I was. https://twitter.com/postsecret/status/1173980810602434561
Up to my old tricks. I took the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 to Disneyland and put them through their paces. Spoiler, the camera is great. Night mode destroys. https://techcrunch.com/2019/09/17/iphone-11-pro-disney-after-dark/
